This week has marked National Truck Driver Appreciation Week. It is when the nation takes time to honor all professional truck drivers for their hard work and commitment in tackling one of our economy’s most demanding and important jobs. These professional men and women not only deliver our goods safely, securely and on time, they also keep our highways safe.
The team at UWT put together this video to thank you all, featuring some familiar faces from your Sales and CSR Departments!
A big thank you from everyone at UWT to all our Carrier Partners for their hard work and dedication!
As the American Trucking Associations states, “The trucking industry is the lifeblood of the U.S. economy. Nearly 70% of all the freight tonnage moved in the U.S. goes on trucks. Without the industry and our truck drivers, the economy would come to a standstill. To move 9.2 billion tons of freight annually requires nearly 3 million heavy-duty Class 8 trucks and over 3 million truck drivers. It also takes over 37 billion gallons of diesel fuel to move all of that freight. Simply – without trucks, America stops.”
